The International Fund For Ireland Wider Horizons Program promotes personal, economic, and social advancement and    encourages contact and reconciliation between nationalists and unionists throughout Ireland. It does this by assisting groups of young people to travel to Pittsburgh to participate in an internship/conflict resolution program. 


Each group is made up of representatives from Catholic and Protestant traditions in Northern Ireland and Ireland. To date the Ireland Institute of Pittsburgh has provided the opportunity for over 1,000 young people to obtain job-training skills and conflict resolution training in Pittsburgh, making the IIP the largest overseas provider of Wider Horizons programs for the International Fund for Ireland.
